CA – Spoiler Alert: The Hero Dies Signing

Michael Ausiello appears in-conversation with The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons at Barnes & Noble on Saturday, September 16th at 2:00 PM.

Michael Ausiello—a respected TV columnist and founder and editor-in-chief of TVLine.com—remembers his late husband, and the lessons, love, and laughter that they shared throughout their fourteen years together. For the past decade, TV fans of all stripes have counted upon Michael Ausiello’s insider knowledge to get the scoop on their favorite shows and stars. From his time at Soaps in Depth to his influential stints at TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly to his current role as founder and editor-in-chief of the wildly popular website TVLine.com, Michael has established himself as the go-to expert when it comes to our most popular form of entertainment.

What many of his fans don’t know, however, is that while his professional life was in full swing, Michael had to endure the greatest of personal tragedies: his husband, Kit Cowan, was diagnosed with a rare and very aggressive form of neuroendocrine cancer.

In this heartbreaking and darkly hilarious memoir, Michael tells the story of his harrowing and challenging last year with Kit while revisiting the thirteen years that preceded it, and how the undeniably powerful bond between him and Kit carried them through all manner of difficulty—always with laughter front and center in their relationship. Instead of a tale of sadness and loss, Spoiler Alert: The Hero Dies is an unforgettable, inspiring, and beautiful testament to the resilience and strength of true love.

Spoiler Alert: The Hero Dies needs to be purchased from Barnes & Noble at The Grove to receive a wristband.

It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.

Peter Capaldi, the 12th actor to portray sci-fi character Doctor Who in the popular TV series of the same name, will be a special guest at Rose City Comic Con 2017! VIP badges available now, autographs and photo ops coming soon.

Known to fans worldwide as the 12th Doctor, Peter Capaldi was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He started acting and singing at an early age and soon landed a lead role in the humorous vampire tale The Lair of the White Worm, co-starring Hugh Grant, and a supporting role in Dangerous Liaisons. He then went on to write and direct the 1993 short film Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life, which won a BAFTA Award and an Academy Award in the Short Film (Live Action) category. Capaldi worked on several BBC projects for over a decade before portraying abrasive communications director Malcolm Tucker in the Armando Iannucci political sitcom The Thick of It, for which he won another BAFTA and was spun off into the film In the Loop. He has since starred in movies like World War ZThe Fifth Estate, and the upcoming children’s sequel Paddington 2. During a BBC live broadcast, it was announced that Capaldi would be the 12th actor to portray sci-fi character Doctor Who in the popular TV series of the same name. Capaldi, who kept his casting top secret, had appeared in the time-hopping show before, as a Roman merchant, as well as in its spin-off Torchwood. He portrayed The Doctor from 2013 to 2017, having recently announced that the upcoming season would be his last in the role.

He joins other great guests at Rose City Comic Con 2017, such as “Weird Al” Yankovic, Felicia Day, Dominic Cooper, Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Brent Spiner, Jason Isaacs, Burt Ward, and dozens more.
